I have spent more time in the craft room this week, than I have in a long while, and I am so enjoying myself.
I am working on some Christmas projects that I am sure you will like, when I finish them! I gave you a little sneak peek the other day. Some of you guessed correctly that I am working on an Advent calender but none came close as to what I will be using the "trashy" novel for. I can't wait till it's finished so I can show you :-)
Anyways, back to today. We have another challenge starting over at Polkadoodles and our theme this fortnight is CAS - Clean and Simple.
I used a snowman off the fabulous Work & Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs Collection. The sentiment is from A Home for Christmas CD.
I have never made a CAS card - at least I don't think I have LOL!
Now, I have to make Christmas cards for my overseas posting, however, my card has been decoupaged up (I used my Silhouette Cameo and Design Studio) and I found it a little too thick for overseas. I will give this one locally.
I embossed the back layer with a Darice Snowflakes embossing folder. The temptation to add some bling to those wonderful snowflakes was terrible, but I did resist!!
Neither could I leave that white alone, so I inked all the edges, after distressing them a little, with CTMH Cranberry ink.
For the inside I placed a little snowman and some snowflakes, using the print and cut feature in Design Studio, and once again inked those edges.
Even with today's creation, I gave in and added some ribbon, but I think it still qualifies as CAS. See I said "resistance is futile" LOL!
So, how CAS can you go? Do you find it hard or easy?
These are the CD's I used today.
You have until Friday, 28 November, noon GMT to enter our Polkadoodles challenge - CAS.
I decided to use my card, or at least the design, for my overseas cards, just didn't decoupage the snowman. So here are another four :-)
